London / New York: Boussod, Valadon & Co / Charles Scribner’s Sons. 1888 - 1889. This lot includes the January, March, April, May, August, September, and December issues from 1888 and the May and November issues from 1889, for a total of nine issues. First editions thus. Original paper covers with each volume in its own protective cardboard case. All volumes are generously illustrated, both with illustrations embedded in the text and with plates (some of which have tissue guards). Condition: Good to Very Good. All issues show general wear consistent with age, including age-toning, chipping or small closed tears to covers and edges of pages, and small stains which only impact individual pages. Specific volumes also show more notable damage, including splits to spines (in two cases, resulting the volume being completely separated into two sections), covers detached but present, individual pages detached but present, and water-staining affecting multiple consecutive pages. Text is still legible throughout, and there is generally minimal to no damage to plates and illustrations.
